If it were purely a question...

If it were purely a question of quality, I would give this product a 5/5 star
rating. However, the cost of this lead ($3.30 for 15 sticks) makes it nearly a
quarter for every stick of lead you use. I think the prices are too high.
The quality of the lead is outstanding. This lead rarely breaks, chips, or
smears. The lead is quite noticeably darker than HB, something more in between
what I would call B and 2B. Maybe we need to call it 1.5B (hahaha). But in all
seriousness, if you're looking for a darker lead for every day writing, this
lead isn't too soft at all for practical use.
I use this lead almost every day in Kokuyo notebooks, I find it improves my
small handwriting and provides a darker line without being more difficult to
erase whatsoever or more easily smudged.
